NO HARRY POTTER MOVIE THIS YEAR!!!!

bad news fellow muggles! there will be no, repeat NO harry potter movie this year!

sucks big time!

the massive movie franchise release has been moved from november 19 to july 17 2009!
In a surprise move, Warner Bros. has moved the release date of "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" from Nov. 21 to July 17. Warners president Alan Horn blamed last winter's 100-day WGA strike in large part for the shift, suggesting all the major studios have been hurt in the development of new tentpole films for next summer.

"We are still feeling the repercussions of the writers strike, which impacted the readiness of scripts for other films -- changing the competitive landscape for 2009 and offering new windows of opportunity that we wanted to take advantage of," Horn said. "We agreed the best strategy was to move 'Half-Blood Prince' to July, where it perfectly fills the gap for a major tentpole release for midsummer."


talk about prolonging the agony of waiting! hayz!

  2. I read it a while ago and it's just sad. I remember when I was young and they show X-men only every Friday. i can't sleep the whole week in anticipation of the next episode. I think this will have the same effect on all those kids out there, including the kids at heart. Count me in.kkk

  6. ugh, so i guess twilight fans are happier people compared to the HP fans. IF the twilight is delayed, it would only be delayed for a month. HP fans would wait for like ... er ... many months.

    freakin' writer's strike. but i guess they're just standing up for more dignity in their part.
